The opposition party APC has responded to president Jonathan’s plan to institute anti-corruption programmes is re-elected next month, saying that even if he’s given 60 more years, he can’t fight corruption, because ‘a corrupt government can never fight corruption.’
The APC said this in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
“Mr. President said he wants to put in place the institutions to tackle corruption before taking on the cankerworm that has almost destroyed the fabric of our society. Pray, whatever happened to the EFCC and the ICPC? Were they not institutions specifically created for the purpose of tackling corruption, but which the Jonathan administration chose to castrate? There is no better way to say this: Pres. Jonathan lacks the political will to tackle corruption, and he will not tackle it if he spends 60 years in office.”
“A President who has spent the last six years trying to diagnose the main problems facing the country will apparently need another four years to plan how to tackle the challenges. By then, all of us would have been buried under the rubble of corruption and our country would have been decimated by insecurity. It is therefore time for Nigerians to vote in a President who will hit the ground running, a President who will tackle the problems of corruption and insecurity headlong, without giving excuses for
